PRLog - Dec. 13, 2012 - PETERBOROUGH, Ontario -- How to Stay Safe This Winter Season

Did you know that winter is the worst season for fires in Canada? Fire prevention and safety is so important all year long, but particularly in the winter while we are heating our homes, cooking in doors, and smoking inside.

Some things to look for in your home;

·         Space heaters need three feet of space around them. Check the electrical cord before using. Keep young children clear of heating appliances.

·         Do not smoke in bed or after having alcohol or medication. This is the most common cause of fire deaths.

·         Never use a flammable liquid near a flame or spark (ex. Water heater pilot lights, electric motors, or heaters.

·         Chimney fires occur in wood-burning fireplaces. Have them cleaned and inspected regularly.

·         Have a professional check your electrical and heating systems –especially before the winter season when they are in constant use.

·         If you are unsure about any appliance or equipment, call a qualified person to check them.
Following this advice just might save lives. Have a safe and happy  New Year!
